Swansea City Unhappy With Liverpool’s Pursuit Of £19m Luis Suarez Replacement

Welsh club’s President says the Reds are talking to the striker behind the Swans’ back.

Swansea City President Huw Jenkins has slammed Liverpool’s approach towards the Swans’ main striker Wilfried Bony by stating that the Reds are being unethical by holding talks for the Ivorian without the permission of the Welsh club.

There have been rumours floating around that Liverpool are trying to convince Bony to join them over Tottenham Hotspur, but Jenkins insists that the Merseysiders have not made the slightest of contact with Swansea yet.

“The only thing I’d say is I’m completely unaware of contact between Liverpool and myself,” Jenkins was quoted by the Daily Mail.

“I was very surprised to hear and disappointed to hear that Liverpool had gone down that route and were talking to the player behind behind my club’s back.

“I’m disappointed that Liverpool are acting in that manner. No official approach has been made to me or our football club.”

It is believed that Kop boss Brendan Rodgers is mulling over whether or not to trigger Bony’s £19 million release clause, while their unofficial talks with the ambitious striker could also get him to push for a move to Anfield by threatening to force his way out of the Liberty Stadium.

Bony has emerged as a prime transfer target for Rodgers after the Reds agreed to part with ace striker Luis Suarez on Friday, but it remains to be seen whether the Merseysiders would firm up their keen interest in the former Vitesse Arnhem man with a formal bid for his services.
